I can't tell you how many have suggested that I trade on margin. When you're hot, it's tough to not fall into the trap of believing that you're intrinsically "right", rather than just having your finger on the current pulse. I have seen it happen to others.
I don't think it could happen to me, but I'm not about to find out. No borrowing for me.
